He is a self-taught
artist born in Istanbul,Turkey.
He painted on and off during his banking
career as a hobby. In 2001 he opted for
early retirement to spare time to paint.
It was not until 2004 however that he
took up art as a career. Since then he
exhibited in various venues in Turkey.
He finds watercolour a very exciting
medium to paint with and although he
uses a variety of techniques and styles,
he likes painting in a loose, quick and
wet style trying to render works look
fresh and transparent.
